Mech Warrior - Stalker by Shimmering-Sword Mech Warrior - Stalker by Shimmering-Sword
Another mech in a new series of paintings I'm working on for the battletech merc unit Strider's Strikers.

This one is a Stalker 85ton assault mech. Not a very pretty mech, but through mine and mecha-master's efforts we have updated it a bit. This varrient carries 2 PPCs and a Heavy Gauss Rifle.

I love what you did here.  You took what is usually represented as a clunky, awkward design and made it look nimble while still being huge.  Perfect.  If the models looked like this, I'd use them.

I love the stalker. Its got to be one of my favorite mechs. very solid fire support mech. its practically a turret that can shuffle around a bit.

Loved them since MW2:Mercs. They look like jumbo jets with legs. Dunno why they say it's ugly: I mean it's no Madcat but it ain't a Jenner either.

Is the Stalker a run and gun type mech like the Firefly, Raven, and Orion? cause it does pack quite a punch to be equal to the Shadowcat and Cougar.

I don't know how fast it is, but it's far heavier and heavily armed than the ones you listed :D

So it would equal to the Madcat or the Vulture?

Heavier still, it's an 85tonner, assault mech.

Wow, such a small size, and so little weaponary and still weighs over Medium to large mechs. Can it actually destroy a Madcat on a one on one dual?

Dude, I'm not much of a battle tech expert so I never knew that the mech is much bigger than what I see it as.

Dude, you are replying to a 1.5 year old message, I'm already over with this conversation.

There's nothing in the image saying it's small, and it's weapons are all heavy hitters, especially the heavy gauss (they are listed in my comments). While it could carry more weapons, it has a lot of armor and ammo. Read it's sarna wiki page if you want to know more about it.

I mean the hulk seems small as almost all heavy hitter (in the games) mechs have "arms" and other utilities (Even the catapult has launch pods). This is the first time I have seem one big mech without arms. I should probably take a look at it some more.

No way an assault mech could move as fast as listed without managing at least a good jog :D

Too bad no serious gaming company will pick it up. It's just a bunch of little companies taking a try at it and failing.

That's an assault class? It looks like it belongs alongside a Firefly. :P What's the height?

Battletech doesn't give heights for it's mechs very often, avoiding the hard work :D
You can tell by it's tiny cockpit window that it's big though :)

I just finished a couple of sketches of this mech not to long ago and this puts both of my efforts to shame. Yet again, awesome work!
